Is my wallet there?
Yo, Ty here.
This week’s prompt
You lost your wallet and call the supermarket you went to last to see if it’s there (while explaining what it looks like).
さいふ を なくした。 ちょくぜん に いった すーぱー に でんわ して、ある か かくにん してみる （さいふ の とくちょう を せつめい する）

Last week’s corrections
You’re giving your Japanese friend a snack or some sweets you like from your home country. They’ve never seen it before, so they ask you what exactly it is.
I experienced this when I gave Lei skittles. I struggled to properly explain what they were.
She tried them and said some very specific things to me, including that they were a 砂糖の塊(さとう の かたまり)[ball of sugar], along with アメリカの味(あめりか の あじ)[tastes like (it’s from) the US]
Needless to say, she didn’t like them.
I guess I can’t argue with either of those descriptions either. I’d argue those are the strong points, though.
Anyway, you can find lots of foreign candy at certain stores. The ones I tend to look at first are KALDI(かるでぃ) and 北野エース(きたのえーす)[Kitano Ace].
KALDI has some great vibes so you should check it out if you find it anyway. I know there’s lots of locations here in Fukuoka at least.
北野エース is also pretty cool. There’s one or two in the Tenjin area:
So if you find yourself with either of those shops in the area and are missing some of your favorite snacks from back home, give those places a look.
Anyway, let’s take a look at this week’s corrections:
